ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022: The opening conference sets the tone
Guillaume Schaeffer, Director of ALL4PACK Emballage Paris, has reopened the doors of the international packaging exhibition.
Here is a look back at the opening conference, a highlight that set the tone for this new 2022 edition. After four years of waiting, impatience has given way to excitement and joy to finally open the doors of the new edition of ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022.
The international exhibition was defined by Guillaume Schaeffer, Director of the ALL4PACK Emballage Paris event, as “four days of discovering more sustainable, more responsible solutions for the entire packaging and intralogistics ecosystem”.
“Lead the revolution”
The motto of the trade fair is “lead the revolution”, in other words “be part of the change that the entire packaging and intralogistics industry is facing”, as Mr Schaeffer put it.
This is the motto of a trade fair that is committed to working alongside its exhibitors to meet the new environmental challenges facing the packaging sector, whatever the industry.
A trade fair with a strong international dimension, with more than half of the exhibitors being international – among the 1100 exhibitors and brands present at the event to represent the various worlds of the trade fair, namely: packaging, printing, processing, logistics and handling.
Thanks to foreign speakers, the international tone is set, with the aim of promoting multilingual communication during the four days of the show, which was held at the Parc des expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte.

The opening conference highlights the highlights of the exhibition
An opening conference highlighted the highlights and new features of the show, as well as their programming :
“With the participation of some twenty start-ups representing the challenges of the packaging and intralogistics industry […] and solutions very much geared towards sustainability and the circular economy”, as the show’s director pointed out.
A hybrid space, favourable to exchanges and meetings around the common interests of eco-responsibility of the various industries using the packaging sector.
With more than 100 innovations unveiled, the presentation of the 6 winners to be discovered, as well as the winners of other competitions such as the “Oscar of packaging”.
A range of innovations motivated by the same challenges of sustainable solutions, all categories included.
25 conferences and 80 speakers took turns during these 4 days, highlighting the “extraordinary pivot of this industry […] which is inventing new solutions with recyclable, reusable, bulk and all these issues”.
Alessandra Fazio, President of the Italian Packaging Institute and Quality Manager at Nestlé, thanked the supply chain players and the Institute’s role in technical and legal advice.
A desire to demonstrate the synergy of the various players to create a virtuous circle favourable to the growth of the circular economy – a priority for the sector in the coming years.
Finally, the value of the primary role of packaging in each sector was highlighted; namely product protection and the quality and safety of packaging for consumers.
To conclude, Chiara Faenza, Head of Sustainable Development at COOP Italia, presented the challenges of eco-design of packaging, from the choice of eco-responsible materials to the implementation of sustainable solutions throughout the supply chain, from manufacturer to retailer.
With a final word on the subject of tomorrow’s packaging, which will have to be “safer, and at the same time functional and efficient for the entire Supply Chain“, but also “innovative, and of course environmentally friendly”.
Eco-design, eco-responsibility, sustainable solutions and circular economy… Key words whose application in each industry heralds the packaging revolution underway, and which will be highlighted during the entire ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022 exhibition.
